Back in 1942, Russell Gray and Robert Cone formed Graco Metal Products in Philadelphia. After 11 years of operation, Gray left the firm and Cone was left as the sole owner. He decided to manufacture his own line of products but what would he decide to do?
The answer appeared in the form of David Saint, an engineer, tinkerer and father of 9 who worked for Graco. He was inspired when a fellow colleague told him about how his wife would soothe their tired and cranky baby by swinging him in their backyard glider swing.
